Other than weight...is there any real difference from veloce to centaur?
I picked the veloce BB b/c it was cheaper (and all the LBS had) and was curious if centaur was all that much of an upgrade.
Only thing I read was that the veloce cups may be harder to work vs the centaur.
Any experience or opinions with either/both?

Is the veloce a ball bering bb?
I have the centaur and it is fantastic. The cups are indeed easier to work with. I expect mine to last for a long time.

new centaur is better.
it take the Campy cassette tool, not the SKS type.

Yeah, found more info and all suggesting centaur is a lot better.
Probably take the veloce back.
centaur bb @ $42 (if you spend another $15 on other things). UK seller, totally legit, generally very good Campy prices, tires too.
